We know that Jun Takano worked on Dry-Z's with Toshihide Ushimaru, who worked for Fujigen, and that towards the end of 1981 at the beginning of 1982, (it's not very clear ...)

IMO the Z is not correct, there are subtle differences. Good attempt though. Here is a picture of Z's in a guitar. Note how narrow the ends of the letter are. It CAN be smudged or have variation due to stamping but IMO buyer beware these days. It CAN be smudged , and IT IS A LOT OF TIMES with Dry Z...

It is not myself who bought them but, to be honest, everything seems legitimate for me. Square holes and everything . The first set has the Z a little thick, it's true, but it seems to be due to the movement of the hand, not to the false stamp. It's just that the prices of these Dry-Z are rising in...
